Up for auction is this well-presented 1996 993 Turbo finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior. Representing one of the very last air-cooled Turbo’s to be built, this 993 boasts over 400 HP along with an advanced all-wheel drive system derived from the iconic 959. Starting life in Oregon, this superb example remained with the original owner for over 18 years under great care. Showing only 16k miles on the odometer while featuring a recent $26k service, this Turbo is now being offered for auction in collector-grade condition by the current owner in Springfield, MO.
The Guards Red finish on this Turbo is said to remain fully original and in exceptional condition. From the factory, this 993 highlights a widened body, “whale tail” rear spoiler, and hollow spoke 18” Turbo twist wheels which come wrapped in new Michelin tires. Offered in an impeccably clean state, this ’96 Turbo makes the ideal collector’s car.
Appointed with a beautifully preserved black leather interior, this Turbo commanded an MSRP of over $111k. Factory options include: supple leather front and rear seats, digital sound package, a 6-disc remote CD changer and heated front seats. The interior is stated to be in exemplary condition with all gauges, electrical components, and accessories fully functional.
The 993 Turbo carries an air cooled twin-turbocharged M64 3.6 L flat-six engine that produces 408 HP and 398 lb-ft torque. Power is sent to all-four wheels by way of a crisp 6-speed manual transmission and an all-wheel drive system sourced from the 959 supercar. This innovative powertrain achieves 0-60mph in an astonishing 3.6 seconds, topping out at just over 180mph. Having undergone a major service last year at 15.7k miles, this Turbo is being offered in excellent driving condition with complete maintenance records included.
The sale of this 993 Turbo will include original owner’s manuals, two sets of keys, the original window sticker and a clean Carfax report. This vehicle is accompanied by a clear title and stands ready for immediate delivery. One of the most sought-after 911 Turbo’s on the market, this 993 is not to be overlooked.
